At the age of 12, he enrolled at the Collège Saint-Michel in Fribourg. He entered the priesthood, joining the Order of St. Benedict. He was a priest in Rheinau, Switzerland, a town located on the Rhine River, at the border between Germany and Switzerland. He was also a professor of theology who wrote several books.
The books he wrote are titled “Catalogus abbatum Rhenoviensium”, “Miscellanea Monsterii Rhenoviensis”, “Tractatus de statu religiosorum.” These titles are in Latin and I believe translate to something like “Catalog of the Abbots of Rhine Valley”; “Miscellaneous Monasteries in the Rhine Valley”, “Treatise on the State of Religion.”
He also wrote a diary of some sort titled: “Diarium ab Anno 1654 usque ad 1677.” That would seem to translate as “Diary from 1654 to 1677.” He died on July 1, 1678.
